At Gangtey Lodge, we aim to disconnect children from their phones and reconnect them with the world around them. Children are naturally curious, and both our Lodge and our valley offer a wealth of authentic experiences. From milking cows and making cheese at a farmhouse to exploring the ancient trails that meander through ancient pine forests past crane roosting grounds, experiences in Gangtey offer opportunities for children to learn and grow. Our young guests love to learn how to shoot an arrow in our archery lessons or make momos in our cookery class. End the day recounting adventures with homemade hot chocolate and marshmallows by the fireplace.
Gangtey is suitable for older guests who are still mobile and able to enjoy moderate walking, nature and culture.
